“The issue is being studied. The Health Ministry has even proposed
changes to the license conditions regarding the accessibility for
pedestrians. This is 300 meters in the cities and towns, 400 meters in
district centers between pharmacies and one pharmacy per 5,000 residents
in cities and towns,” she said at a press conference in Kyiv on
Tuesday, answering the question of Interfax-Ukraine.

Demchenko said that the state committee for entrepreneurship
supported the idea, while the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine blocked
it.

“We hope that we’ll hold a general meeting with the participation of
pharmacy associations and jointly convince the competition agency that
restrictions should be introduced,” she said.
